Break Away

January 25, 2009
By Kate Howard, Felton, PA

You didn't used to be like this
You used to love and see
Thats the you that I miss
Than what you've become to be

All of a sudden it was my fault
You put on me this blame
I want it to come to a hault
But still you always call my name

It's funny how you're so aware
It hurts in all the words you say
It's funny how you pretend to care
It hurts me how you push away

Looking in your eyes
And they don't know what to say
I know you want to break my heart
So go ahead and break away

i believe 'hault' should be 'halt'. but that's okay.

i like the rhythm and rhyme scheme... trying something new is always good! (going from songs to poetry, trying a new type of poetry, etc etc.)

good job!
